Xubuntu is a full-featured operating system with which you can get started right away – no need to install additional software for most day-to-day tasks.


It’s easy to customize Xubuntu to match your personal tastes. It takes but a few clicks to change the theme, amount and location of panels, font, and more. Install panel plugins and more applications for additional functionality using the application installer. Finding new software is a breeze and installation is just a click away. Once applications are installed, updates can be downloaded and installed automatically.


Frequent releases

A new version of Xubuntu is released every six months, every fourth of which is a Long Term Support release, meaning that you are eligible to security updates for three years as opposed to the not-too-shabby-either eighteen months that you get with the normal releases.

Vibrant community

A vibrant community exists behind the Xubuntu project, making sure that there are always plenty of real people available who are all eager to help.

Key Applications

Xubuntu comes with the award-winning, extensible Firefox web browser, the light-weight yet feature-rich Abiword for all your word-processing needs, and Gnumeric for the creation and manipulation of spreadsheets. Both Gnumeric and Abiword are compatible with their respective popular file formats.

Some applications

Get Xubuntu

<!– –> 

Xubuntu releases:

Minimum system requirements

You need 192 MB RAM to run the Live CD or 128 MB RAM to install. The Alternate Install CD only requires you to have 64 MB RAM at install time. To install Xubuntu, you need 1.5 GB of free space on your hard disk. Once installed, Xubuntu can run with starting from 192 (or even just 128) MB RAM, but it is strongly recommended to have at least 256 MB RAM.

Xubuntu Mirrors (9.04 Jaunty Jackalope):

Please download Xubuntu from a mirror in a country close to you.
Alternatively, you might be interested in free Xubuntu CDs.

PowerPC and Playstation 3(TM) users, please see http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/xubuntu/ports/releases/jaunty/release/

Xubuntu Mirrors (8.04 Hardy Heron):

Please download Xubuntu from a mirror in a country close to you. Note: If you know how to use BitTorrent, the Torrent downloads are preferred.

Free Xubuntu CDs

Although Ubuntu’s ShipIt service is not available for Xubuntu, On-Disk.com generously provides free Xubuntu CDs under its free disk service Quick Ship:

These CDs provide the latest version of Xubuntu free of charge, only charging for shipping costs. Do note that this is an independent third-party project that is not run by Canonical nor the Xubuntu developers.


Please make sure to backup your data before attempting an upgrade.

If you are using Xubuntu 8.04 “Hardy Heron” or newer, you can upgrade your system using the update manager.

  1. If you are running a Long Term Support release (e.g. 8.04) and want to upgrade to a normal release (e.g. 8.10), then you first need to make sure a new release is listed in the Update Manager. You can do so by opening Applications->System->Software Source, then, in the “Updates” tab, set “Show new distribution releases” to “Normal releases”.
  2. Open Applications->System->Update Manager.
  3. Click the Check button to check for new updates.
  4. If there are any updates to install, use the Install Updates button to install them, and press Check again after that is complete.
  5. A message will appear informing you of the availability of the new release.
  6. Click Upgrade.
  7. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Install Xubuntu from Ubuntu

If you have an existing Ubuntu, Kubuntu, or Edubuntu installation, it is possible to install Xubuntu and retain your current installation. To do so, just go into Synaptic (or Adept if you use Kubuntu) and install the xubuntu-desktop package. Next time you login, you can choose Xfce4 from the Session menu on the login screen. If you want to have a default Xubuntu install but have installed Ubuntu or Kubuntu, you can remove all Gnome and KDE packages by following instructions on this page.

Dual Boot

Since Xubuntu shares the ubuntu-base, please reference the Ubuntu wiki for dual boot (installation while keeping another operating system) instructions.

New Features since Xubuntu 8.04

Abiword 2.6

Xubuntu brings you the newest Abiword 2.6.4 word processor with tons of bug-fixes and new features, some of which include:

  • The ability to embed gnumeric charts into your documents
  • A new collaboration plugin allowing users to collaboratively work on the same document in real-time
  • Improved support for Microsoft Office and OpenOffice documents
  • You can now drag and drop images in and out of AbiWord documents
  • the ability to open files on remote shares, ie. samba, ftp or ssh shares
  • much more!

Improved Multimedia Experience

Xubuntu 8.10 provides an improved multimedia experience by including the Listen Multimedia Player. With Listen, you can:

  • Organize your music collection
  • Browse Shoucast Webradio and Podcats
  • Read lyrics and have access Wikipedia information about artists or albums at your fingertips
  • Broadcast by interfacing with your icecast server
  • Record streaming media
  • Visualize good times with the built-in graphical visualizer.

Find what you’re looking for with Catfish

With Xubuntu 8.10, you’ll find an option to “Search for Files” in the Places menu. Clicking this will present you with the widely popular, light-weight search front-end called Catfish. Catfish enables you to quickly and easily search for your documents, music, pictures, videos, and more.

For the technically inclined, Catfish is a frontend for different search engines (daemons).

You can employ find, slocate, locate, doodle, tracker, beagle, strigi and pinot – what ever tickles your fancy!

Easily manage your secrets

Xubuntu 8.10 includes the well known secret keeper Seahorse. Seahorse is a GTK front end for GnuPG – the Gnu Privacy Guard program. It is a tool for secure communications and data storage. Data encryption and digital signature creation can easily be performed through a GUI and Key Management operations can easily be carried out through an intuitive interface.

X.Org 7.4

X.Org 7.4, the latest stable version of X.Org, is available in this version. This release brings much better support for hot-pluggable input devices such as tablets, keyboards, and mice. At the same time this will allow the great majority of users to run without a /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. A new failsafe X is introduced, to give better tools for troubleshooting X startup failures.

Two of the older nvidia binary drivers are not available for X.Org 7.4 yet, so users of these drivers will be automatically switched to the corresponding open source drivers.

Linux kernel 2.6.27

Xubuntu 8.10 includes Linux kernel 2.6.27, a significant release with better hardware support and numerous bug-fixes.

Encrypted private directory

The ecryptfs-utils package was recently promoted to Ubuntu main, with support for a secret encrypted folder in your Home Folder (by Michael Halcrow, Dustin Kirkland, and Daniel Baumann).

Network Manager 0.7

Xubuntu 8.10 ships Network Manager 0.7 (by Dan Williams and others), which comes with long-expected features, such as:

* system wide settings (i.e., no need to log in in order to get a connection)
* management of 3G connections (GSM/CDMA)
* management of multiple active devices at once
* management of PPP and PPPOE connections
* management of devices with static IP configurations
* route management for devices

More information can be found on the Network Manager wiki.


DKMS (by Dell) is included in Xubuntu 8.10, allowing kernel drivers to be automatically rebuilt when new kernels are released. This makes it possible for kernel package updates to be made available immediately without waiting for rebuilds of driver packages, and without third-party driver packages becoming out of date when installing these kernel updates.

Samba 3.2

A lot of new features have been added in Samba 3.2 amongst them:

  • clustered file server support
  • encrypted network transport
  • ipv6 support
  • better integration with the latest version of Microsoft Windows™ clients and servers.

PAM authentication framework

Xubuntu 8.10 features a new pam-auth-update tool, which allows simple management of PAM authentication configuration for both desktops and servers (by Steve Langasek). Packages providing PAM modules will be configured automatically, and users can adjust their authentication preferences by running sudo pam-auth-update.

More information can be found in the Ubuntu wiki.

Totem BBC plugin

Xubuntu 8.10 features a new plugin for the Totem movie player that fetches free digital content from the BBC. To enable it, start Totem (Applications -> Multimedia -> Movie Player), enable the plugin (Edit -> Plugins -> BBC content viewer) and select “BBC” from the drop-down labelled “Playlist”.

Thanks to the BBC and Collabora for their work developing this feature.

Help & Support

<!– –> 

Below you’ll find a plethora of resources that will make getting help and resolving issues a snap. Getting help with Xubuntu is easy!

Online documentation

See the official documentation developed and maintained by the Xubuntu Documentation Project at help.ubuntu.com. This site also hosts community-contributed documentation, which everybody is invited to improve!

Other online resources:

Community Support

Can’t find the answer you need in the documentation? Ask someone! Get answers from other Xubuntu users.

Internet Relay Chat

Internet Relay Chat. A live chat area of the Internet in which real-time conversations among two or more people take place via special software. Each specific IRC channel begins with a # and is dedicated to a different area of interest. IRC is considered another part of the technology of the Internet the same way FTP, Telnet and the Web are. The following is a list of popular channels on the Freenode IRC network that you can connect to with your gaim instant messaging client:

  • #xubuntu (Community Support)
  • #xubuntu-offtopic (General Discussion)
  • #xubuntu-devel (Development Discussion)

IRC is the fastest way to get help, because you can converse “live” with other users about your problem.

Online forums

Just as in the traditional sense, forums on the web are discussion areas on a web site where visitors can post questions or make remarks on a given topic to be answered by their peers. The forums are an excellent place to ask for help as well as to find user-written tutorials, how-to’s, and old threads that may already answer your question.

You can find the official Xubuntu forums at ubuntuforums.org.

Mailing Lists

A discussion group that occurs via mass email distributions. Mailing lists are usually maintained by individuals utilizing list server software. List servers maintain a list of email addresses to be used for the mailing list. Subscribing and un-subscribing to the list is accomplished by sending a properly formatted email message to the list server. There are two types of mailing lists: moderated and unmoderated. To send a message to an unmoderated list, you email it to the list server which automatically emails your message to every name on the list. To send a message to a moderated list, you email it to the mailing list’s moderator who would then send it on to the list server for distribution.

For general support, join the Xubuntu-users mailing list or review a list of all the available mailing lists at lists.ubuntu.com.

Tech Support System

You can also add your support question in the new tech support system which is a part of the Launchpad system. Here you can keep your query active until a community member offers an answer which solves your problem. You can also search through all of the other questions which have been asked and answered.

Commercial Support

Xubuntu users around the world tell us that support and administration expertise are critical in ensuring the success of their Ubuntu deployments. In addition to community support and partner support, Canonical, the company behind this Debian-based GNU/Linux distribution, offers enterprise-class support.

The Canonical Global Support Services team are on hand to support your home, corporate, government and education installations.
